It’s finally February, that month when everyone’s thoughts turn to the brutal murder and martyrdom of St. Valentine. Um, I mean, romance. Seattle is no different, with nearly the entire February issue of Seattle Magazine devoted to the topic of love and relationships.
And wouldn’t you know it? They’ve asked yours truly to contribute my two cents’ worth.
What do Seattle singles have to say about the dating scene? Is there one? If so, who’s out there in it and how are they going about it? Do people even use the word “dating” anymore? Or do they prefer some euphemism like “hiking the Pacific Crest Trail”? And if that’s the case, are condoms one of the 10 Essentials?
I penetrated the city and asked local singles for answers to these and other burning dating questions (as for that burning sensation, you really should see a doctor). Click here for a decade-by-decade breakdown of the Seattle singleton scene.
And in honor of today’s holiday — Groundhog’s Day – here’s another little ditty. Ever fallen for somebody who’s crawled out of a romantic stupor, spotted a shadow of a relationship, then fled back into their hidey-hole, leaving you out in the cold? Sorry to break it to you, but that wasn’t a guy. You were dating a groundhog.
Happy February, folks, and hope to see you between the covers (of Seattle Magazine, of course!).
